    Can you smell what The Rock is officiating?

    In general I'm not a fan of pranks, particularly ones that put the prank-ee in an initially uncomfortable position or require them to feign enthusiasm in front of a crowd, but considering the bride and groom's history of being epic Rock fans, I'm tentatively on board for this one. Besides, what says "true love" more than a ceremony filled with earthquake metaphors?

    This could be considered NSFW. You know, if you work somewhere BORING.

    You've heard before that there's a connection between the geek community and the kink community, and I've spoken about as much at comic cons before. Recently, I had the chance to go to my first DomCon - a professional and lifestyle domination convention in Los Angeles - in support of my digital series, Incredible Girl, and while I'd never been to DomCon before, it felt really familiar. After all, geeks go to cons all the time, right?
